Material Type: Internet resource
Document Type: Book, Internet Resource
All Authors / Contributors: John Tobler; Henry Dawkins
OCLC Number: 55824396
Notes: Calculated by John Tobler, probably with revisions by a later hand. The calculations on the calendar pages are identical with those in his Pennsylvania town and country-man's almanack for 1770 (Wilmington). The notes are basically the same, but with many additions and omissions in Father Abraham.
Though the Tobler almanacs issued after his death in 1765 have been attributed to his son John, the publisher's preface to the South Carolina and Georgia almanack for 1765 (Savannah) states that Tobler's calculations had then been completed up to 1800. The later almanacs contain no indication that Tobler junior is the author.
Advertised in the Pennsylvania gazette, Philadelphia, Oct. 5, 1769.
The frontispiece is signed: H.D. (Henry Dawkins).
